Students and their families at a new online community learning centre in Dublin are concerned about the safety of online learning.
In an open letter to the local authority and the local Catholic church, the group of students and their parents are calling for an investigation into what they believe are the illegal activities of the centre.
“Our concern is that there is no oversight and no monitoring of the activity of the school,” said the group’s president, John O’Leary.
“We’re asking for an inquiry into how the school operates and the level of supervision,” he said.
Online learning centres are set up at many colleges and universities to provide a virtual and virtual learning environment, where pupils can learn from their peers.
The school is located in the heart of Dublin city centre, close to the city centre.
The students have called on the local authorities to investigate and remove any activities that could have an impact on the health and safety of students, teachers and staff.
“What we’re concerned about is that if something were to happen, it could affect other students, we’re worried about how that could happen, we are worried about the wellbeing of the students,” Mr O’Brien said.
The centre has been operating in Dublin for about a year, and the students have been part of a group that has attended the centre regularly since its opening in September 2016.
In their letter, they also asked the centre to remove its posters from the area and stop the activities.
“The posters are not just about promoting the school but also promoting the teaching of our religion,” they said.
“It’s also about showing respect for our culture and how we celebrate the holidays.
We don’t want the posters to go unnoticed.”
The students also asked for an independent investigation into the centre, and called on their local Catholic Church to take action.
The community learning center is located at the corner of Ballymacross Street and Ballymurphy Road.
The student leaders have said that their group has been to the centre before, and it is open to all pupils from the age of eight to 18.
The local Catholic group has also been contacted by the group, and said it has not received any complaints from the students or their parents.
Online education has become a hot topic of conversation in Ireland.
The national government recently approved the use of online educational tools to boost the number of children in Irish schools, with a new pilot scheme to provide the technology to more schools.
The new initiative is also in line with a proposal from the Department of Education to allow online learning to be provided in schools that are not part of the national school system.
The programme is expected to be rolled out in the next few weeks.
The Irish Times understands that the students and parents have been in contact with the Department, and have been told that the centre will not be closed for the time being.
“As a result of the inquiry, we have asked for a further review into the activities of this school, and we will continue to work with the school to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students,” the group said in their letter.
